Only two weeks left in the NLL regular season and the playoff picture is almost complete. Toronto knocked Philly out of playoff contention and punched their ticket to the big dance simultaneously. The East Division is now all locked up – Minnesota and Philadelphia are warming up their golf games already. The first two seeds are Edmonton and Calgary respectively. Colorado earned a big win over Edmonton this past weekend control their own destiny – one more win gets them into the playoffs or a Stealth loss.
There are only a few weeks left in the NLL season and the playoff race is in full force. Rochester and Edmonton have locked up a playoff spot in the East and West respectively. Buffalo and Calgary are good position as well and can lock up playoff berths with at least one more win. The rest of the league is clamoring for the last two spots. The race couldn’t be closer as Philadelphia and Vancouver have gained wins recently.
